Can a Chiropractor Treat Truck Accident Injuries?

Chiropractors, unlike most physicians, use less invasive approaches to help treat individuals who might be suffering from chronic neck/shoulder pain, back pain, and injuries they sustained in a car or truck collision. Many individuals who have been involved in an accident with a truck or while operating a truck have been known to suffer from various injuries that may heal with the care a chiropractor can provide. Some of these injuries include:

  • Back and Neck Injuries. Many truck accident victims often suffer from back and neck injuries after their upper body is jolted forward and back from the impact of the crash. Sometimes, a person might suffer from whiplash, or they may suffer from minor aches and pains if the accident was minor. With consistent manipulations of the spine, chiropractic care may help reduce the neck or back pain a victim might be suffering from. Spinal manipulation and other types of treatments help to properly align the “body’s musculoskeletal structure” that “enables the body to heal itself” [Source: Spine Health]. And according to Web MD, “research has also shown chiropractors to be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches.
  • Arm and Leg Injuries. Aside from suffering from neck and back injuries, many victims often suffer from discomfort in their arms and legs, all of which can also be treated by a chiropractor as well. Chiropractors use certain techniques such as the Graston Technique that can help “break down scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are usually associated with some form of trauma to the soft tissue.”

While chiropractic care might not be right for all accident victims, these doctors have built up their reputation and proven they too can treat individuals who have been involved in a wreck by helping them improve their conditions without having to undergo surgery.

Now, in order for a chiropractor to successfully treat you, it is important that you share with them your medical history along with your current medical condition. If there were any contributing factors to you suffering from the pain you are experiencing, such as being involved in a truck collision, it is important that you share this information with your doctor prior to having any sort of treatment rendered.

As mentioned, chiropractic care isn’t for everyone as some medical conditions do require surgery or other forms of treatment, however, it is important that you familiarize yourself with all of your options in terms of what medical care is available to you. Something else you should become aware of is how you are going to recover the compensation you are entitled to for the accident you were involved in. While chiropractors and other health care professionals can treat your injuries, giving you some sort of relief from the pain, it isn’t cheap to receive treatment on a consistent basis.
